A Mother Is a Queen

Even more than kings and queens
And more faithful than the sea.
Of all things, you are a mom,
Because you've chosen to be.

Your kids kiss the ground you tread
With their gratitude and love,
Extracting from your wisdom
That's so acquired from above.

For you are a "God-given…"
"Best gift in the whole wide world."
And one that truly sparkles
As your gifting is unfurled.

May your children ever praise you
In the country, or in town;
For they are the glist'£ning stars
In your bright-maternal crown.
